News: Paredes went 1-for-3 with a double and a run and remains in a battle for the last roster spot this spring, MASN Sports reports.
Impact: Paredes has been a monster offensively this spring, slashing .424/.429/.697 in 33 at-bats this spring. He brings offensive skills, but offers little defensively. It is thought he could contribute defensively at third base, and it might work if the Orioles choose to use Alejandro De Aza as the backup in centerfield and leave David Lough off the roster.

News: Paredes homered and drove in five runs in Monday's Grapefruit League game and manager Buck Showalter notes defense is looking better this spring, MASN Sports reports.
Impact: Of the Orioles in camp who have not secured a roster spot, Paredes has the best bat. The problem is his defense. Ryan Flaherty and Everth Cabrera are superior defenders to Paredes. What could help Paredes is that he is out of minor league options. If he cannot make Baltimore's roster, Paredes would be exposed to waivers and another team might take a chance on his bat. Paredes is 9-for-21 with seven RBIs this spring.

News: Paredes went 1-for-2 with a double and made a nice defensive play in Tuesday's spring training game, according to MASN Sports.
Impact: Paredes will battle for one of the final roster spots this spring. Tuesday's game was a nice start. Paredes his .302 with two home runs and six extra-base hits in 53 at-bats after being acquired late in the season, but defense was not his calling card. The diving stop he made Tuesday is more significant than his double.
